Quantel Laser has won a $7-million contract to supply lasers to be built into a wing-mounted fighter aircraft pod, such as on the French Dassault Rafale fighter.

The multi-year contract was awarded by a French Tier-1 defense contractor. The military aircraft lasers will provide critical telemetry as well as target designation functions, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

Quantel designs and manufactures high-power, solid-state lasers for scientific, industrial, military, and medical applications.

This contract covers a specific production series of lasers designed to be built into a wing-mounted fighter aircraft pod, such as the French Rafale. The laser is integral to the system, providing critical telemetry as well as target designation functions.
